Drivers can expect changes in the timing of traffic signals on U.S. Highway 95 through Coeur d’Alene beginning this week, the Idaho Transportation Department announced.
The state is reminding motorists, who have become accustomed to certain traffic patterns in this area, to stay alert and pay attention to the signals.
Drivers will notice a change in the timing and sequencing of the traffic signal lights, which means they no longer can anticipate old traffic patterns.
The changes are part of ITD’s efforts to find new ways to improve traffic flow through this four-mile stretch of highway.
A major traffic study was performed along this stretch of Highway 95 last October. The information gathered from that study is being used to improve traffic flow through the busy corridor.
